AFAIK, the threading issue is still present. mike at mike2k.com can
confirm this. However, I don't think anyone has narrowed it down to
just being a threading issue or something within MySQL, or perhaps some
problem between the two. I don't have the Opteron box yet, so I cannot
check -CURRENT to see if the problem is still there. Can somebody else
confirm if MySQL is still not able to use more than one CPU on
